In Nigeria: A call for action to uphold good governance amidst general inaction, fraud, corrupt practices and insecurity to lives and property?

The federal govt led by President Bola Asiwaju Tinubu (PBAT) is busy making monetary policies that their actions are opposed to. What are the ways, and the optimal way out of this dilemma?

In the heart of Nigeria's challenges, where corruption, insecurity, and governance failures loom large, there emerges a clarion call for

transformation. Let us heed this call, for within it lies the seeds of hope and progress.

The Epistocratic Challenge: A Call for Change

Obasesam Okoi and MaryAnne Iwara, in their insightful analysis, highlight the systemic risks plaguing Nigeria: election fraud, terrorist attacks, herder-farmer conflicts, armed banditry, ethnic and religious militias, injustice, disregard for rule of law by persons in positions of authority, and police/security operatives brutality. These are not mere shadows; they are the stark realities faced by our nation. The failure of governance to address these issues is a glaring indictment of our current system.

The Charter of Accountability and Good Governance

To navigate this treacherous terrain, we must forge a new path—a charter of accountability, good governance, and systems that exhibit zero-tolerance for corruption. Let us inscribe within it the following principles:

1. Citizen-Centric Leadership: Our leaders must recognize that they serve the people and practice the servant leadership model.Their duty lies in attending to the legitimate expectations and needs of the citizens. The public good must always triumph over personal interests. Such leaders will abhor unrealistic emoluments and benefits to self, shun budget padding and extra-ordinary expenditure of public funds.

2. Transparency and Responsiveness: The opacity of governance breeds distrust. Let us throw open the doors, allowing light to disinfect our institutions. Responsive leaders listen to the pulse of the people, adapting policies to their needs.

3. Rule of Law and Human Rights: Justice is the cornerstone of good governance. Upholding the rule of law ensures that no one is above justice, and human rights are inviolable. Let us champion these ideals¹.

4. Education and Voter Capability: Our voters need enlightenment. An epistocratic system—one founded on the pedigree of leaders and the education of voters—can break the chains of ignorance. Educated voters make informed choices, and capable leaders steer the ship of state with wisdom¹.

The Optimal Way Forward

1. Institutional Strengthening: Bolster our institutions—the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC), the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB). These guardians of integrity must be fortified to combat corruption and malfeasance.

2. Holistic Policy Reform: Policies are the lifeblood of governance. Let us craft policies that empower, uplift, and protect. A robust policy framework, rooted in economic growth and development, will be our compass.

3. Unity and Collective Action: We stand stronger together. Citizens, civil society, and the private sector must unite. Our collective voice can shake the foundations of corruption and demand accountability.

The Call Echoes

Nigeria, our beloved land, awaits her redemption. Let us heed the call for change, for within it lies our destiny. Rise, fellow Nigerians, rise! The dawn of a new era beckons, and together, we shall forge a legacy of good governance, justice, and prosperity.

"It is impossible to enjoy the fruits of effort without first making the effort." — Margaret Thatcher

Let our effort be unwavering, our resolve unyielding. For Nigeria, for our children, for generations yet unborn—let us be the architects of transformation. 🇳🇬
